Scan service

The Library can digitize and send you a journal article, a book chapter or part of a document, according to the fair dealing provisions of the Copyright Act, which allows 15% to 20% of a document to be digitized.

 Use the Sofia search tool to make a scan request.

Once you have located the document, click on the Reserve/Request button in the Check Availability section. If necessary, log in.

Select the recovery option Scan Request and enter the information about the section to be scanned (Chapter 2, Page 20-30, etc.).

Within a few days, you will receive an email containing a link that will allow you to access to the scanned file. Before you can access it, you must agree to the terms of use as described below.
